Welcome to MATCH (Mississippi Achievement Through Chess), a program within the Center for Mathematics and Science Education (CMSE) at the University of Mississippi. The mission of MATCH is to promote scholastic and collegiate chess throughout the state of Mississippi as a platform for achievement, a tool for improving academic and life skills, and a catalyst for individual and community growth.

MATCH is directed by Alex King, a United States Chess Federation National Master with several state and national chess championship titles as both player and coach. Please feel free to email him with any questions regarding the MATCH program.

MATCH is a new program being offered by the CMSE. We plan on hosting several events throughout the year. To be notified of new events, please submit your email address below to be added to our MATCH mailing list.
